Eagle Pride

Parent Newsletter For Caroline Middle School-August 2019


First, I would like to say that it is an honor and a pleasure to have the opportunity to serve you as Principal of Caroline Middle School. At Caroline Middle School, we look forward to building strong relationships with families throughout the entire school community. Ultimately, our goal is to create a space where students feel safe, connected, and challenged academically. My introduction and welcome letter to expand on my values, beliefs, and experience is linked below:


About Eagle Pride

Eagle Pride is our monthly parent newsletter and a part of our communication plan that reflects how I value trust, communication, and transparency. The newsletter will be issued at the end of each month. At Caroline Middle School, we believe that open lines of communication will create opportunities to enhance engagement and ensure collaboration to drive decision making. Therefore, the newsletter will include announcements, upcoming events, academic support, resources, testing information, information about school counseling, and information about tutoring and mentoring. Our drive is to develop a sustainable partnership between the school and families to create a supportive learning environment where children not only thrive academically, but socially and emotionally as well.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook: Caroline Middle School and Instagram: @caroline_cms_eagles. Our website is updated regularly for more information: https://www.ccps.us/cms/. Twitter Coming Soon!

Parent Teacher Organizations serve to support school efforts, teachers, staff, and the community to enhance the educational experience of students.
